More than just a bridge over the Tarn River
One of the main attractions of the Midi-Pyrénées, the Millau-Viaduct spans the Tarn Valley, west of Millau. The Millau-Viaduc project became the key-element to extend the A75 motorway, to connect the centre of the country with Montpellier, on a pharaonic scale. Not obvious, but it was worth waiting for. This cable-stayed bridge, among the highest in the world is an architectural masterpiece which proudly spans the 2460 meters that separates the Larzac-plateau from the Causse-Rouge. One can discover the visitor-centre Espace Viaduc (www.leviaducdemillau.com) as well as the Air de Brocuéjouls at the edge of the Causse-Rouge. However, one of the most stunning views is to be found above the Peyre village (listed among “The Most Beautiful Villages of France”).
